In brief: Sometimes none

About half of all DVT cases do not cause symptoms.
The symptoms you feel can depend on the location and size of clot . They include swelling, tenderness, leg pain that may worsen when you walk or stand, sensation of warmth, and skin that turns red or blue. If you and your doctor are concerned a good history and ultrasound is indicated. This is a noninvasive test that will provide the diagnosis.

In brief: Can vary

Blood clots in the vein can produce pain or can be completely pain free in some situations.
Pain is not a reliable indicator of a blood clot. In fact, severe pain would concern me for a problem that may not necessarily be dvt-related.
